Other involvement at UC includes Phi Sigma Rho Sorority, Engineering Ambassadors, and Serve Beyond Cincinnati. This will be four years that Alyssa has been involved with FYE and she has thoroughly enjoyed watching the program grow with every semester of involvement.

Shane Blaney

Peer Leader Captain

Shane Blaney is a fourth year biology (biomedical) major. The Westside (according to Shane, “the best side”) of Cincinnati has always been home for him. He loves the culture and atmosphere of Cincinnati and could see himself living there for the rest of his life. Outside of the university, he loves to go four-wheeling and enjoys a good bonfire. This is his fourth year with the Center for First Year Experience & LC’s and he loves every minute of it! Shane says that he looks forward to seeing where the Learning Communities program is headed and he hopes to make the best out of the experience alongside everyone involved!

In addition to being a PLC, she is a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, Serve Beyond Cincinnati, and loves to volunteer for Bearcat Buddies. Kellen has been involved with FYE for three years and has difficulties holding back how much she loves Learning Communities.

Matt Morgann

Matt Morgann

Peer Leader Captain

Before Matt became a PLC, he was a Peer Leader for two semesters. The only thing Matt loves more than working hard, being a PLC, and changing the lives of first year students is Reid Becker’s warm heart. Other than FYE, Matt is the President of the CEAS Ambassadors, Vice President of the Construction Student Association, Public Affairs Chair for the CEAS Tribunal, and a member of Sigma Lambda Chi and Tau Alpha Pi.
